Earlier today, reporters traveling with Mitt Romney on his "Every Town Counts" tour returned to their bus to find a note from the Republican candidate: "You guys have it way too soft — nice ride." Postscript: "Erased your hard drives." As the Caucus's Ashley Parker wrote, "it was unclear if Mr. Romney was making a joke" or alluding to this bit of journalism from the Boston Globe.
